Cubism at Its Finest


Well look at this adorable...thing.

Calling all artists: first one to name this gets bragging rights!

...give up?

This sculpture, located right in between two gorgeous NYU dorm buildings, is a large Picasso statue made of stone using cubism. Considered one of the most influential art movements of the 20th century, cubism artwork is when objects are analyzed, broken up, and then reassembled in a very unique and abstract form.

This statue however, is a reinterpretation of Picasso's original work, "Portrait of Sylvette" and the whole thing, dorms and sculpture included, have now been considered a landmark and has achieved many architecture awards as well.

Blind Tiger Ale House: Cask Beer Vs. Regular Beer

The Blind Tiger Ale House is one of the best beers bars we've found in all of NYC with over 50 different bottled beers, 28 beers on tap, and some great wine. However, they're very known for their cask beers, which aren't easy to find in the city. Cask beer AKA 'real ale,' is unfiltered and unpasteurized, brewed from only traditional ingredients and is able to mature naturally, but it still contains live yeast. This is definitely not even close to your average beer. It's served nice and cool while being hand pumped into the glass instead of from a keg. Back to the bar,  it's spacious yet has a very cozy feeling. There's great options of drink and food, including the grilled cheese. The bartenders are all very friendly and are willing to help find that perfect tasting beer just for you. Located at 281 Bleeker St, it's open every day from 11:30am to 4am.
